Best Picture: Under the Skin (337/21)
This is the first Skandie winner not to have premiered at Cannes since There Will Be Blood in 2007. Overall, Cannes films have won 12 times out of 20. I think Being John Malkovich is the only previous winner out of Venice.

Best Director: Jonathan Glazer, Under the Skin (413/23)
Skandie history: #16, Birth (2004). (The film itself didn't place, so we clearly dig him.)

His second win in this category in the past three years, and the first screenplay he's written solo.

Complete results available here. Thanks to all voters, and especially to Mark Pittillo for programming the automated ballot and maintaining the website. The big post-mortem will be up in the next day or two.
